Mallorca Luxury Cycling was created by brothers in law, one a US cycling champion and the other a Spanish chef and Mallorquin native.
From his early age living on the island Manuel developed his passion for cooking under the tutelage of his father, an unofficial but highly regarded master chef of Spanish island cuisine. Antonio Romero learned to cook in the Spanish Navy and for reasons that should appear relatively clear in contrast devoted the rest of his life to the pursuit of mastering the art of cooking.
After serving his turn in the Spanish Military Manuel decided to follow his passion for food as well, a journey that would lead him away from his home islands and across the world covering three countries until ultimately leading him back to Mallorca. His journey started with the establishment of a local cornerstone gastro pub in his home town of Manacor. It was this first endeavor into service industry and it made it possible for Manuel to follow his passion as a chef, after selling the pub Manuel decided to take a break and moved to Vienna, Austria.
After spending two years in Austria his journey lead him to Los Angeles where he honed his craft of Spanish cuisine at the hands down best Spanish restaurant in Los Angeles, La Paella. Thereafter, he also worked at Chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Beverly Hills.
At the end it was in Los Angeles where Manuel mastered his love for Spanish cooking to near perfection and it is with his uniquely crafted and acquired skills that he brings back his attention and devotion to the island, that may have been far from sight, but was always home, Mallorca.
